Phonetic Symbolism and Children’S Brand Name and Brand Logo Preference

Phonemes can provide a cue for brand attributes with consumers preferring congruency between a brand’s name-logo and attributes. Since children don’t have adult-level language skills, they may not attach similar meaning to phonemes. In three experiments, we examine the meanings children draw from phonemes and its implications for branding.
